FEMA Reaches Milestone With Integrated Public Alert & Warning System

Earlier this month, on October 13, the Organization for the Advancement
of Structural Information Standards (OASIS) voted to approve the OASIS
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.2 USA IPAWS Profile as a technical
specification for public alert systems. The profile will enable
emergency managers across the country to use a common format for
creating emergency alert messages that can travel across multiple alert
systems. The availability of such a profile furthers FEMA’s objective
of increasing interoperability across federal, state and local alert
systems.
